Rumors around Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) Galaxy Note 4 have been rampant as its anticipated fall release approaches. We have already seen several renderings and leaked images of the Korean company’s flagship phone. But a new concept design by MyGadgetic shows something that Samsung has never done before.
Galaxy Note 4 to be more pocketable than its predecessor
It shows off the Galaxy Note 4 with a unique design. Back cover of the device is made out of bamboo and ceramic materials. The concept highlights a large display, camera sensor, an extremely thin design and home button. Its slim design makes Galaxy Note 4 more pocketable than its predecessor. However, the original Galaxy Note 4 may not resemble this concept. That’s because Samsung has historically used plastic designs in its flagship smartphones. Recently, there have been rumors that Samsung might break the trend by launch a Galaxy Alpha with metal chassis.
Separately, popular gadget leaker EVleaks@ leaked a list of apps that offer a sneak peek into the Galaxy Note 4’s functionality. The list has a number of .apk extensions, the file format required for Android app package files. The PhotoStudio_WQHD_K.apk, SStudio_WQHD and OutofFocusViewer_WQHD_K.apk extensions suggest that the device will have a QHHD display. VRSVC.apk and VRsetup.apk point to virtual reality capabilities. The Galaxy Note 4 may be compatible with headsets like Oculus Rift.
Galaxy Note 4 with fingerprint sensor
Moreover, the FingerprintService.apk extension suggests that the upcoming phablet may have a fingerprint scanner. And then there is SHealth3_5.apk extension, which points to the S Health app that was launched with the Galaxy S5. According to the rumor mill, Samsung will launch two versions of the Galaxy Note 4, one with 64-bit Exynos 5433 processor and another with Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chip.
The Galaxy Note 4 is expected to sport a 5.7-inch QHD display, 3GB RAM, 32GB built-in storage, 16 MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, 3.7MP front shooter, and ultrasound S-pen stylus. Latest media reports suggest that the device have a UV sensor to protect you from skin cancer.
